    Stop At: Kon Zay Dan Street, Kon Zay Dan St, Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)

    You will meet your English speaking guide at your hotel lobby in Yangon before heading out to the Valhalla of traditional medicine – the medicine market at Kon Zay Dan Street. Curiosity creeps in as soon as you exit your vehicle for the coming period and wander through the collection of shops and apothecaries, showing a broad selection of glass jars, drawers and pots, each with their purpose and cure. Alongside your guide, the smell of herbs, bark, leaves and flowers are merely a fraction of the sensory overload you will experience, once entering one of these bastions of local medicine. It comes without saying that gaining a diagnostic review of your health from a practitioner – the experience of receiving a different view on your physical and mental health is something one has to try out. Benefits aside, your guide will translate what these physicians may recommend.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Yangon (Rangoon), Yangon (Rangoon), Yangon Region

    Massages of any kind, accompanied with the right blend of herbs and spices, have proven to ease the body in a better state of relaxation as well as improve blood circulation.

    A one-hour foot massage at the end of your journey ends your half-day excursion before being transferred back to your hotel.
